The Boston Bruins came out on top of the Montreal Canadiens in an exciting game on Wednesday night. The Bruins opened the scoring with a goal from Andrew Ference in the 1st period. The Canadiens managed to tie it up with a shorthanded goal from Mathieu Darche early in the 2nd period but former Canadien Benoit Pouliot scored to give the lead back to Boston. Patrice Bergeron got a powerplay goal late in the 2nd period to give the Bruins a 3-1 lead. Max Pacioretty scored early in the 3rd period to bring the Canadiens back within 1 goals and they Erik Cole ties the game 3-3 after stealing the puck from Zdeno Chara in the Boston zone.
This game would require a shootout where Tyler Seguin would prove to be the difference maker scoring the only goal against Carey Price. The Canadiens were denied on all their attempts by Tim Thomas. The Canadiens have only won 2 out of 10 shootouts this season.
A fight in the first period between Ryan White and Adam McQuaid got the game going. This was one of the hardest hitting games I have seen from the Montreal Canadiens this season. They played well but in the end Boston was the winner.
